Anniversary machine to celebrate 111th year
Special features and the customary BOGE quality: the S 111-4 anniversary edition of the S-4 screw compressor.
The company founder Otto Boge looks on astutely from the white side of the machine: however, it is not just the design that makes the S 111-4 anniversary compressor from BOGE special. The exclusive machine version that is part of the popular S-series, from the Bielefeld-based compressed air specialist, is more efficient than ever and stands out with its unique features. However, please note that it is only available for the duration of the anniversary year – BOGE became 111 years old last November.
Is everything o.k.? Or will it soon be time for the next service? The S 111-4 anniversary compressor lets users know its operating condition at a single glance, and can even do this remotely: For the first time, BOGE has integrated the traditional status notification into the body of the machine as an easily visible light strip. The LED bar at the upper edge of the compressor reliably and conveniently indicates any anomalies, even in vast production halls. BOGE has also equipped its anniversary machine with numerous efficiency improvements as standard: the IE4 motor ensures the current possible maximum degree of efficiency for the drive. The specific power consumption of the S 111-4 has also been improved. The machine is available with direct drive and frequency control.
The compressor has been fitted with super-soundproofing as standard too: it works at a sound level of 67 dBA and is therefore the best in its class compared with competitor products. Normal conversation is therefore possible next to the running compressor, and adjoining office spaces or production workplaces do not require any additional noise protection. With a drive capacity of 110 kW, the anniversary machine is in a somewhat higher power range, for deployment in medium to large industrial plants. A direct drive, very few built-in maintenance parts and a low speed of 1500 r.p.m. make the S 111-4 low-wear and low-maintenance, and therefore also extremely durable. Besides this, the compressor is impervious to dirt and dust particles from the ambient air thanks to its design.
Founded in 1907, and in its fourth generation as a family-run company, BOGE has stood for intelligent engineering, progressive solutions and convincing quality for 111 years. The S 111-4 is exclusively available in the anniversary year only – in the familiar BOGE blue. However, BOGE will subsequently offer many of its special features on other machines of the S-4 series.
